Along the way, we saw more beautiful covered bridges, we never got tired of seeing them. In total, we saw dozens of covered bridges all over the state. So charming.
Continuing on our leaf peeping quest, we headed to central Vermont. Our plan was to “follow the fall south”. The Lake Champagne campground in Randolph Center had beautifully manicured grounds and a lovely view of the mountains.
Two great places to visit while in Burlington are the Shelburne Farms and the Shelburne Museum. Both are located in Shelburne (on the outskirts of Burlington), and are separate entities but there is a family connection that links them.
Okay, it’s official. We LOVE Vermont. Granted, she is wearing her beautiful autumn petticoat, but it’s not just the beautiful mountains and quaint towns we love, it’s the people and the vibe. Huge focus on the environment and a pervasive local food movement.
When I heard that there was an area of Vermont called the Northeast Kingdom, I knew that I had to go there. It just sounded like a fairy tale. It’s located, of course, in the northeast corner of the state and is the most undeveloped area in Vermont.
